Women who have a history of ectopic pregnancy or who experience symptoms such as bleeding or stomach pains soon after becoming pregnant may be invited to have a scan at an early pregnancy unit in their local hospital. These scans are not routinely available for pregnant women on the NHS unless there is a medical reason for one. We spoke to Rhonda Flemming, consultant gynaecologist and obstetrician at London Gynaecology , as well as to four mums who had glimpses before the three month mark, to find out what you need to know about the procedure. Flemming says it is possible to have a scan from as early as four weeks into your pregnancy and in some rare cases scans may be performed even earlier than this. Most private clinics do not offer scans before six weeks of pregnancy, unless there is a medical reason for needing one. Flemming adds that a scan in early pregnancy may be recommended for a variety of reasons.
